Walk­ing track gets longer

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

THE West­ern Sub­urbs Re­gional Or­gan­i­sa­tion Of Coun­cils (WESROC) has recog­nised Perth’s Noon­gar her­itage with the open­ing of two Whad­juk walk­ing trails in the west­ern sub­urbs.

The Karda Bidi and Karak Bidi trails were of­fi­cially opened last month, adding 21.9km to the Whad­juk trails.

Noon­gar El­der Neville Col­lard con­ducted the Wel­come to Coun­try and pre­sented a mes­sage stick to City of Ned­lands Mayor Max Hip­kins.

Mr Hip­kins said the launch of the trails was a proud mo­ment for WESROC and the com­mu­nity.

“This launch rep­re­sents more than ex­pand­ing the Whad­juk net­work, it recog­nises Perth’s Noon­gar her­itage and ur­ban bushland,” he said.

“This is also rep­re­sented in the partn­er­ship and work that WESROC has car­ried out with Noon­gar El­der Neville Col­lard in cap­tur­ing the his­tory of the area and Noon­gar lore for walk­ers to en­joy on their smart­phones as they walk the track.”
